Melting Crayons In The Shape Of A Heart
This is a charming little video which anybody can get involved with and shows the creation of a valentine’s heart silhouette lined with ultra heat melted colored crayons to produce a rather contemporary design which is incredibly unique.
Now what you will need is a glue gun, glue sticks, pre stretched canvas, a heat gun, some black acrylic paint and obviously your pack a wax colored crayons. The first stage is to paint or roller on the black acrylic paint onto your canvas and then allow it time to dry which if applied evenly enough to just cover the canvas you can expect about 45 mins till fully dried. Next it is time to glue the crayons in whichever order strikes your fancy into the the shape of a heart with the heated glue gun and again allow time for the glue to set as you don’t want your nicely arranged colored crayons falling off later down the line.
Use your heat gun to gradually melt the crayons allowing gravity to pull the melted wax towards the floor whilst at the same time you are slowly rotating the canvas to get the desired effect consistently all the way around the edge of the heart. With an almost instant drying time you will find that once your last crayon has been melted you are ready to deliver your creation to that special someone. Have fun and see what crazy color combinations you can evoke.
